Modi Masjid in Shivaji Nagar, Bengaluru is a century old Sunni masjid, which is being renovated and is reopened recently on 29th April 2019. The old Modi masjid was built over more than hundred year ago by Abdul Gafoor Modi, who was a well-known philanthropist of the time. The masjid is named after Abdul Gafoor Modi.

Check the youtube video published by View Live Tv. You can see the name of Mosque is written as Modi Abdul Gafoor Masjid:
Comments on the video also convey that the confusion may appear due to the name of Masjid, so the name should be changed to Modi Abdul Gafoor Masjid.
“मस्जिद कमेटी से गुज़ारिश है के इस मस्जिद का नाम मोदी मस्जिद के बजाए पूरा नाम “मोदी अब्दुल गफूर मस्जिद” ही रखे वरना कुछ फिर्का परस्तो को फितना फैलाने का एक और मौका मिल जाएगा।”
